When I abandoned the left, I suddenly found my sense of humor returned and that my level of anger and hostility declined as I no longer took everything personally

As someone who lives and owns a business in the Southland, I can tell you NO one has a Trump sign posted in his or her window, in their front yard, or on their car, NO ONE. Who wants to invite the sort of physical violence and mayhem we have seen the past four years upon themselves or their family?

135 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020

 

Let the left crow about the Tulsa rally’s numbers, it means NOTHING…

Century City, CA 90067, 06-24-2020 Wednesday:  One thing to which, I have been paying attention to lately is the fact that the left lacks a sense of humor, hence WHY candidate and now President Donald J. Trump finds himself in ‘trouble,’ under fire, or the frequent object of scorn, derision, hate speech, and ridicule.  When I began my exodus from the left to the center (or slightly right of center), I began to regain my long-absent sense of humor, something I had no clue I had lost, yet I did lose, for decades or so it seems.

President Trump held his rally Saturday night in Tulsa, Oklahoma, one that millions of Americans live-streamed or watched on Fox News[i].  There is NO other politician like Donald Trump, one that can drive hundreds of thousands of people to snap up tickets when they are offered to the public.  Sam and I sat at home, watched the entire rally from start to finish and even though there were loads of empty seats in the nosebleed section, so what?  People were either intimidated by the Chinese Bat Flu[ii] or by the Marxist thugs roaming the streets outside the arena.

The fact that possibly 10 million Americans gave the rally two or more hours on a Saturday night tells you that the enthusiasm for the 45th president is alive and well, if not snowballing down a 10,000-foot peak with momentum behind it.  I would warn the left (why should I?) that to dismiss it or to screw with ticket sales (or however they did it) so the crowds are not as big as they normally are is to make the same mistakes they made four years ago.

As someone who lives and owns a business in the Southland, I can tell you NO one has a Trump sign posted in his or her window, in their front yard, or on their car, NO ONE.  Who wants to invite the sort of physical violence and mayhem we have seen the past four years upon themselves or their family?

I would tell you, I would rather post a BLM sign on my front window, smile, and wave at protesters as they file past[iii], and then silently commit myself to getting to the polls early on November 03, 2020 and voting a straight GOP ticket.  This is where my voice and tens of millions of other people like me will make our voices heard.   Election Day.  With our votes.  This is how we will ‘speak’ to the nation and to the world.[iv]

Even when we go up I-5 to Bakersfield, a strong RED area in the state, we don’t see Trump signs, even in Oildale.  NO one wants to invite the bull crap that comes with doing something as ‘provocative’ as supporting a presidential candidate as no one wants their tires slashed, their car body’s paint job keyed, or their windshield or side and back windows bashed in, no one.  I suspect one’s auto insurer would ask their client first, IF they did anything to ‘invite’ the vandalism of their vehicle or their home?

I would imagine that if I told my auto insurance company that my vehicle was trashed, they would ask me, “Chef, did you by any chance have a Trump sign or bumper sticker on your car?  If so, then you should have known that as a suicide negates a life insurance policy so, too, a Trump bumper sticker or anything else expressing support for the 45th president on or near your vehicle will negate your policy.”  Wow.

I wouldn’t be surprised.  This is the world in which, we now live and I can tell you that even 20 years ago, this would not be the case whereas now, it most certainly is or soon will be.  This smacks of where I grew up, when I grew up, and how I grew up, a time and place where one could utter nothing that might shine a light on one’s politics.  To do so might invite a beating or it could invite death.  It was what it was.  It now seems to be what it is.

Friends, I cannot blame people for shying away from attending the Trump rally, especially with the gauntlet through which, they would have to pass, both to and from, as I am sure there were Antifa watchers monitoring cars and I bet quite a few of them suffered significant damage if not total destruction.

Unfortunately, this is the day and age in which, we live and NO one wants to experience firsthand anything we have seen on our television screens where people are being savagely beaten, kicked in the head when down, and pummeled with cinderblocks.  No one wants to experience this.

Let’s re-elect Trump first and THEN deal with this Antifa and BLM fecal matter.  There will be plenty of time in which to do it.  First things first: re-elect Trump.  Prepare to fight and when our spark ignites, there we will be.  I have some ideas as to how we can fight[v].

This is me as a young chef at an awards dinner at the Bon Adventure Hotel in the 1980’s when I was working there as the Night Sous Chef’s Assistant. I began cooking in the 1960’s in my native Greece before moving to Los Angeles, California, in the early 1970’s. I apprenticed under an ACF Master Chef shortly thereafter and now here I am. I still am involved in professional foodservice as an instructor.

FOOTNOTES:

 

[i] Fox News Channel’s Bret Baier said the numbers for the channel’s presentation of the Trump rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, were between 7.75-8 million which is a humongous number.  There is no way Joe Biden can ever generate the kind of enthusiasm that exists for President Donald J. Trump.  The left truly needs to assess what it believes as otherwise, the Dems will be in for yet another electoral surprise this November.

[ii] Sadly, modern day social justice warriors tell us that to refer to the Chinese flu as the ‘Chinese flu’ or to label it the “Kung Flu” or the Xi Jinping Bat Virus is somehow RACIST.  I say, “BULLSHIT!”  There is nothing wrong with a little bit of humor in this day and age of a deadly bat virus reaping havoc across the world.  Nothing. Again, find a sense of humor.

[iii] Wave at them as they file past with my hand firmly gripped on my handgun in my pocket.  Not putting up with any violence like what they saw over in Santa Monica.  WTF were the cops?

[iv] Although I could be wrong, I suspect the drubbing coming the way of the Democrats is going to be far more devastating to them than was Hillary Clinton’s loss back in 2016 and remember: she was a SURE thing.  Look at how that worked out for them.

[v] Mostly is that once the election ends, it will be time to deal out destruction to the leftists.  What I would do is what seems to have worked well in American history.  If I lived in Seattle and the mayor would not lift a finger to protect my business or my family, I would join up with other business and property owners in the area, hire about 500-1,000 illegal aliens standing in front of every hardware store, arm them with baseball bats (wrapped in barbed wire like the Zombie shows), and send them into CHOP in the middle of the night and have them pummel every left-wing POS they come across.  At $500 per head, it would be worth doing.
